According to ESPNLA’s Ramona Shelburne, the Lakers have agreed on a multiyear extension with general manager Mitch Kupchak.

Kupchak has been the Lakers’ GM since he took over for Jerry West in 2000.

This extension is a strong signal that Kupchak’s role on the struggling franchise remains solidified, and is a reflection of the esteem in which he is held by the Buss family.

The timing of the extension is also effectively a vote of confidence to reflect the Buss families’ trust in him to shape the future of the organization, sources told Shelburne.
